Our philosophy is to maintain a rich curriculum that promotes the importance of our gagana (language), aganu’u (culture) and Christian values, with the expectation that children will grow up to be ta'ita'i (leaders) in Aotearoa. “We treasure the Samoan language, we live it, we use it, we share it with our children.”

Tino e Tasi means unity in one accord.  We believe that this requires our teachers, management, aiga, and the community to support the development of our children.

Gogosina Space

Accomodating our under 2's, the Gogosina room caters to a maximum of 9 children. Our two dedicated faia'oga create a calming, relaxed space, filled with music, laughter and language. This is the foundation of where our Samoan values are laid.


Tava'e Space

Accomodating our over 2's, the Tava'e side nurtures our over 2's to become confident in themselves, and ready for primary school.  This space values le va fealoa'i and the reciprocal and collaborative learning, especially between siblings and extended aiga.

None to share just yet...

“We learnt from the Kohanga Reo movement that if the children have no identity then the children are not proud of who they are and their family heritage” - Patricia Luamanuvae-Silao
